Seriously tempted, but would have caused me trouble with work. I'm glad they shot lots of video in these years, even if they aren't my very favorite years - it's still great just to be able to see them again once in a while!

Downhill From Here and Truckin' Up To Buffalo are both pretty terrific concert videos, and I totally agree with you about Victim. That may be the very only case where I like the studio version better than any live ones I've heard.

I always preferred the Weir/Wasserman takes on Victim:

And, it may be heresy, but I think it's also one tune where Vince could finally shine. He just seemed at home in its weird, creeping structure, and maybe he finally found something he could do with those ghostly patches they always stuck him with. The Cal Expo 1993 version (on Road Trips, or here:
http://archive.org/details/gd1993-05-26.fob.schoeps.evans.GEMS.84031.flac16) is a rare case of Jerry and Vince locking in. At about 5:30, you can hear Jerry actually follow him. The Playin' from this show, of course, is pretty sweet, too.
